How can Stowe Pool be improved?

Lichfield District Council is working on a funding bid to Heritage Lottery Fund, which could see up to £1 million invested into Stowe Pool and Fields, and is now seeking local views.

If successful, the funding could be spent on improvements such as a new entrance, refurbished paths, a new play area and more.

The application also needs to include ways to get the local community more involved in Stowe Pool through education and volunteering.

To help support the funding bid, the council has been asking park users to give their feedback on how they would like to see money spent.

The council will also be collecting ideas at a drop-in workshop at the Discovery Hub in Beacon Park on Saturday 28 November, between 10am and 3pm.

The Parks Team will be on hand to discuss ideas and collect views, and everyone is welcome to drop in and give their thoughts.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Councils Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “Stowe Pool is a popular open space in the heart of Lichfield. We’re keen to secure this funding so we can bring it up to the quality of Beacon Park, Minster Pool and the Garden of Remembrance, which underwent extensive restoration works in 2010 and 2011 as part of our Lichfield Historic Parks Project.”

If you cannot get to the drop-in event, but still want to give your views, please fill in a quick online survey by Thursday 31 December 2015.
